Website Access Statement

As a county, Nottinghamshire has recognised the importance of accessibility and is beginning to show evidence of this. The product listings within our webpages and visitor guides have been enhanced and feature icons to help visitors with disabilities find suitable accommodation, accessible places to visit and things to see and do when in Nottinghamshire.

Web accessibility

We believe websites should be accessible to all users regardless of disability, computer system or web browser. As a result, Experience Nottinghamshire has developed its web pages with the widest audience in mind to ensure they meet a good level of compliance with W3C accessibility standards.
By default, the text on our website is set to a relative size and is mobile responsive. This means it can be adjusted by using the settings in your browser, to increase or decrease the size.
